Type of Spiritual Experience
Mrs G Robinson had the following experience at a time when she was deeply depressed
A description of the experience
I was in that deep abyss of depression where I yearned to disappear into a hole in the ground and pull over the cover. That not being possible, I did the next best thing and went to bed, wrapping myself tightly in the blankets for comfort.
I don’t know how long it was before the real me was floating close to the ceiling, face downwards, looking down with great interest at the body lying on the bed. The interest was because the mind in that body was a total blankness, a complete darkness, like a TV screen switched off.
‘Real me’ was ethereal, had no shape, no substance, but had a mind, enjoyed sensation, could see everything in the room in detail, was a power over and above the body that lay inert. The body had no mind, no feeling, no eyes, no life.
I cannot believe it was just a dream – dreams are soon forgotten
